Astrological Reasons of Motor Neuron Disease

By Astrologer Usha Saxena
In order to make our body perform voluntary movements like walking and swallowing, to name a few, our brain sends instructions to the muscles along nerve cells that are known as motor neurons. Motor Neuron Disease (MND) is an ailment that destroys nerve cells slowly, which leads to weakness and wastage of muscles. It occurs usually between the age 50 and 70. Men are most prone to this disease than women and the ratio can be taken as 2:1 respectively.

There are mainly three types of MND –

  1. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  2. Progressive Bulbar Palsy
  3. Progressive Muscular Atrophy
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is the most common amongst all MNDs and this causes the weakness as well as stiffness in muscles.

Progressive Bulbar Palsy affects the population in ratio of 1:4; it means that one out of four people get affected with this MND. In this disease, the patient finds difficulty in swallowing and speaking.

Progressive Muscular Atrophy is rarely found MND in people. In this disease, the native suffers from the weakening, wasting and twitching of muscles.

Symptoms of MND

Rate of development of MND is different in each individual and also effects uniquely to each individual. MND usually starts in a body gradually; it might start feeling with tiredness. As it affects muscles, first symptoms could be clumsiness in fingers and weakness in grip.

Some Other Symptoms of MND

  • Pain
  • Discomfort
  • Cramps in muscles
  • Spasms or twitching in muscles called Fasciculations
  • Stiff joints
  • Constipation due to restricted movement of muscles or diet change
  • Excess saliva
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Coughing or choked feeling
  • Breathing problems
  • Depression
These symptoms do not signify MND always. However, if you have them, see a doctor as soon as possible. Though MND doesn't affect your thinking or reasoning abilities, but a change in personality or intellectual difficulty could be felt.

As MND grows, you may experience following symptoms:

Weak muscles will affect your everyday tasks like turning the taps or handles of doors, using your hair brush or unbuttoning your shirt. Difficulty in raising each foot step and this will lead you to drag on floor. You will not be able stand straight and specially feel difficulty in keeping your neck straight. This will also affect the muscles of throat, due to which you will find difficulty in swallowing and speech. This might also affect your emotions, due to which you will start laughing as well as crying easily. Muscles of chest will also be affected which will make you feel difficulty in breathing.

Causes of MND

MND has a genetic link. On the other hand, MND appears for no apparent reason in most people. This is called sporadic MND.

Astrological Reasons of Motor Neuron Disease (MND)

Mercury is the planet that rules over nerves. Hence, weak, afflicted as well as functionally malefic Mercury can harm the nerves, which will lead to weakening and wasting of muscles.

A very badly afflicted Mars affecting ascendant or Moon can also do this. This mainly causes weakness in muscles and stiffness. On the other hand, stiffness and choking comes under the department of Saturn.

Hence, we can conclude that afflicted and functionally malefic Mercury, Mars as well as Saturn affecting ascendant or Moon can destroy functions of brain. This will further gradually destroy the nerve cells leading you to weakening and wasting of muscles.

Dear Mrs. Saxena ji,

I see from your article that you have knowledge about medical astrology.
A friend of mine is suffering from Spasmodic Torticollis - you can read about it on these pages:

Could you please write what could be the cause of it from the point of view of Jyotish?

And also please indicate what astrological remedial measures are recommended.

Thank you very much,



Following is his description of the symptoms, how it developed and the treatment he is receiving; His age is 60.

The symptoms started in July 2005 (7 years ago). My neck started pulling to the left, in the beginning very slightly but gradually increasing more and more. After about six months it was quite bad. From the very first moment of getting out of bed in the morning the symptoms are starting. The only way I can get relief is to lie down on my left side resting my head on a very small pillow. But when I get up it immediately starts again. After being on my feet for only a few minutes, either sitting or walking, I start getting cramps in my shoulder muscles. After approximately 15 minutes I can't stand it any more and have to lie down.

After waking up in the morning, after a good night’s sleep, my neck muscles are usually completely relaxed, and I can keep resting in my bed, even lying on my back which I normally cannot do. This is the only time during the day when my neck muscles are relaxed.

Spasmodic Torticollis (or Dystonia) is a highly specialised illness, or rather a syndrome. The neurological department at the hospital has only one thing to offer: Botox. This is a nerve poison which is injected locally in the muscles of the neck to inhibit the brain signal from reaching the muscle. I’ve been receiving these injections regularly every few weeks, but it is not a solution to the problem.
